Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
It's been fun watching this get around all day.  Bailout = scam in terms people understand.  Love it.

As soon as this hit my in-box, coming from a friend in Seattle to the American southeast (about the time Redstar was receiving his missive from wherever), I realized that the Bush-Cheney-Paulsen holdup was going to be dead meat.

They've become a joke, a punchline, a laughing stock.

And I think they overplayed their hand--put out their ransom demands over a weekend when the markets were quiet, but people had a chance to read about it, and to think. And they got mad!

It's not a done deal yet, but I'm increasingly optimistic that perhaps people are waking up just a little bit from the fear-induced stupor of the last several years.
